Item details

In 1893 New Zealand became the first self governing country in the world with universal women's suffrage. But women were not allowed to run for office. In the past 125 years most of the world has gotten it's shit together in terms of women's voting rights and right to stand for election, but we still see women woefully underrepresented in elected government. It's been 101 years since Jeannette Rankin was elected as the first woman to serve in the US Congress, but our national legislature is still only about 20% women. Now more than ever we need to be remembering what women have been fighting for for centuries, celebrating our progress as a civilization, but reminding ourselves that the work is not over.
If you are a bad bitch knitter who would have fought for voter equality 100 years ago, and who cares about women's civic engagement today, these are the socks for you.

Like all Original Spin patterns, part of the sale of this pattern goes to an organization doing important work in our world. This sock's proceeds go, fittingly, to She Should Run, a non-partisan organization working to increase the number of women running for and being elected to public office at all levels of government in the US.

Some deetz on this Original Spin original pattern:

The skills needed are: knitting, purling, increasing and decreasing stitches, fair isle style color work
It includes instructions written in American knitting terms

This pattern is written to fit most feet American women’s shoe sizes 7-9, but is adaptable for a larger size.

Knit these socks and wear them to the polls. Knit these socks and wear them on the campaign trail. Knit these socks and wear them at your victory party when you are elected.

FAQs

I try to be very clear in my listings which items are finished and ready to go, and which items are patterns so that YOU can have the fun of knitting yourself something cool. But I understand that mistakes happen. If you purchased a pattern by accident, but contact me within 24 hours and BEFORE you download the PDF, I can cancel your order. However, if you have already downloaded it, or if you do not contact me right away, I will not be able to refund your purchase.
